Michelle Stafford is a busy woman these days. When her alter ego Phyllis isn't spicing things up in Genoa City on The Young and The Restless, the actress will be taking a trip over to The Ringer. According to TV Guide's Michael Logan, Stafford will mix it up with Sarah Michelle Gellar's Bridget, who has taken over her twin sister Siobhan's life. According to Stafford:
My character is really nosy and very much in your face — one of those me, me, me types who talks a mile a minute. She runs into Siobhan, who is really Bridget, and has no idea why Siobhan doesn't recognize her. They have this very fun encounter in an elevator. Then my character sees 'Siobhan' going into a meeting with a divorce attorney and can't wait to tell her husband. READ MORE

Daytime has been my bread-and-butter for over nine years now, so it’s a big part of my life.I have the utmost faith in the choices I made and the work that I’m doing. People say that the soap genre is going away, and in my humble opinion I don’t believe it is. I think this is the result of networks doing some penny-pinching and trying to put in cheaper programming. In the long run, they’re going to find that canceling these soaps that have been around for decades is probably not a wise move. It looks good on paper, but the fan bases of these soap operas rival those of primetime shows.
